Who am I ?
From a very young age, I have had a very intense passion for Motorsports, and my life is about Simracing for more than 20 years now.
From the very first Gran Turismo on Playstation to iRacing, including the Grand Prix saga of Geoff Crammond, Kart in real life or rFactor, I have always been driven by the intensity of the competition and its fairplay.
Comitted to Endurance Racing, you will find me mainly on official iRacing series such as IMSA, VRS GT and ESS, as well as iRacing Special Events.
Having today more than 9000 iRating, and a solid experience at the highest level, I aspire every year to enter the biggest championships.
As a driver for Logitech G Altus Esports, I'll share with you, on my website, my knowledge and understanding of Simracing.

My Simracing story
My first virtual races date back to 1995, on Nintendo with Mario Kart and F1 Pole Position, then on Playstation with the Gran Turismo saga.
I started Simracing more seriously on PC at the age of 12, using a Joystick on Grand Prix 2. The goal was to achieve the fastest laptime on Monaco, against my father Didier!
At the end of 1999, I had my first competition year on Grand Prix 3, on pilotesf1.com. My equipment was a Microsoft Sidewinder without Force Feedback !
I quickly won races and I became the pilotesf1.com champion 3 years in a row.
Spotted by a team of the Formula Simracing (FSR) World Championship, I entered the Hernj Grand Prix roster in 2003. I became the 2004 World Championship runner-up in 2004 behind Roy Kolbe (with 5 wins).
I then started to study engineering, and I had a break from virtual racing for a few years. I was still able to win the Formula Simracing Monaco Grand in 2008 on rFactor, during one of my rare participations to the FSR WC.
After that, I participated in some championships of the Fédération Française de la Simulation de Courses Automobiles (FFSCA) on rFactor, and I won the french F3 championship in 2009, and again the pilotesf1.com in 2013 (on Game Stock Car).
In 2015, myself and long time friends from pilotesf1.com decided to found an Endurance team on rFactor. We called it the Tertre Rouge Racing (T2R), in tribute to our yearly meetings near the mythic turn, at the real-life 24h of Le Mans.
We began our iRacing adventure in 2016, when the Circuit de la Sarthe was released, giving us the opportunity to fulfill our passion of endurance racing, on the most realistic plateform.
My Altus team
At the end of the iRacing 24h of Le Mans, where I was able to sign the Pole Position in Split 2 with the T2R, Simon Feigl, Team Manager for Altus Esports contacted me to reinforce the GT roster within their team.
Altus had just grabbed the 3rd spot in the iRacing 24h of Le Mans, and we immediatly felt like we had a connection.
Despite all the attachment I had for my T2R team, I decided to take the plunge, and I joined this very young and promising Australian team, with their absolutely beautiful livery.
A wonderful adventure started then, for Simone, Andrew, Simon, Tuomas and many others, that would lead us to very precious victories.
I even had the chance to meet some of them in the flesh, first at the real-life 24h of Le Mans in 2019, and at the SimExpo the same year.
In 2020, my old teammate and friend from the T2R, Florian Denard, joined us too !
Our sponsors are VRS, Logitech G, Astro Gaming, Cube Controls, Racetech and Own3d.tv. They give us the chance to enjoy our passion at its best !
